Six Quirks

I was tagged by Lynne for this one! (She actually tagged me on my art blog, but I couldn’t think of six art-related quirks, so I moved it over here.)

The rules (ha ha… we all know how much I care about rules!):

  1. Link to the person who tagged you
  2. Mention the rules on your blog
  3. Tell about six unspectacular quirks of yours
  4. Tag six bloggers by linking them
  5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged

And now, my six unspectacular quirks:

  1. I always put my left sock and shoe on before the right.
  2. I am almost always in the middle of reading at least two or three books.
  3. I am not, and never have been, a fan of roses. Carnations (or lilacs in a pinch) are the flower for me!
  4. I would rather read than watch television.
  5. I am ambidextrous because my best friend in grade school was left handed and I learned to write (and bat and bowl and play darts and blah blah blah) with my left hand because it pissed me off that the nuns picked on her.
  6. I almost always fall asleep curled up on my right side.

And as for tagging other people… yeah, well, that’s the rule I usually don’t bother with. However, if you’re interested in sharing a wee bit about yourself, consider yourself tagged.

    Thanks for playing along. So, you put your left sock AND shoe on before starting on your right foot? That’s quite interesting! Very stellar of you too to support your friend the way you did!

    Well, no… I put my left sock on, then my right sock. Then I put my jeans on. Then I put my left shoe on, then my right show. Then I put my shirt on. Most of the time, I add a sweater on top of that. :)

    Supporting my friend had an added bonus… I annoyed and confused the nuns. I wasn’t left handed, and yet I was pretending to me. I got a new nickname from Sr. Mary Daly: The Devil’s Advocate. Kewl.
